I hold dual Bachelor's degrees in Social Sciences with a focus on Education and Criminal Justice, complemented by a Master's degree in Education with an emphasis on Curriculum Specialization, as well as a Doctorate in Philosophy.

With over 11 years of teaching experience, I have effectively instructed high school students from grades 9 to 12, fostering their academic growth in an online setting through platforms such as Skype and asynchronous messaging on discussion boards. I have provided comprehensive education covering subjects such as English, Language Arts, Writing, Sciences, Social Studies, Mathematics, and various elective courses. During this time, my students consistently achieved above-average grades and developed a genuine enthusiasm for learning. Importantly, all of my students have successfully met the educational requirements outlined in their respective states, enabling them to advance to college. My passion lies in guiding students to achieve their full potential, encouraging them to delve deep into subjects and think critically, thereby setting them on a path towards successful adulthood.

My teaching methodology encompasses a spectrum of educational theories, including constructivism, humanism, realism, and idealism. Moreover, I integrate brain-based learning techniques, ensuring that my pedagogical approach is grounded in evidence-based practices. This innovative teaching style has been rigorously researched, supported by statistical data, and proven effective not only in traditional brick-and-mortar schools but also in the context of virtual education. This progressive teaching philosophy is rooted in my academic training, acquired during my master's and doctoral programs in higher education.

I believe in customizing instruction to suit each student's unique abilities and requirements. My approach is characterized by kindness, adaptability, friendliness, compassion, understanding, and flexibility. I employ the "flipped classroom" model, in which students engage with assignments before the live sessions. In these live meetings, students transition into the role of teachers, sharing their new discoveries, intriguing findings, and significant insights. I actively participate in these discussions, supplementing their contributions with additional valuable information. This collective learning experience aligns with the principles of the "open classroom" model, in which we collaboratively pursue the shared goal of learning and enjoying the educational process. Together, we analyze and draw conclusions from the assignments and prepare for the upcoming week, including guidance and assignments to be completed in the form of the next chapter in each subject.

As contemporary educators, we recognize the limitations of lengthy lectures in live meetings, a more traditional approach to teaching. Instead, we engage with our students through dialogues and interactive discussions. This interaction is more effective as students absorb information and feel a greater sense of involvement. We are trained to assume the roles of coaches, guides, and mentors to our students, addressing their individual needs while fostering a sense of community in the class. I often guide our discussions by posing specific questions to students, encouraging them to share their newfound knowledge, and ensuring that the timing of these discussions maximizes their educational impact. The questions I ask are carefully chosen to transform moments into valuable learning opportunities.

The semester's curriculum, encompassing two subjects, is designed to be advanced and accelerated. Students will be required to practice effective time management and maintain a high level of motivation. Beyond conveying subject matter through traditional homework assignments, projects, videos, and live meeting discussions, my educational approach extends to teaching students how to learn. When students pose questions, I may task them with online research to uncover answers. I guide them towards reliable online resources to find solutions. A similar process may be applied when reviewing student homework, where I pose additional questions that require supplemental online research beyond the textbook. Through this pedagogical method, I aim to enhance students' capacity and desire to learn, equipping them with essential skills for lifelong learning. My goal is to empower them to take control of their education, a significant and valuable skill if leveraged correctly.
Homework Offered
๐Ÿ•” If a student must miss a live video meeting or needs to turn in homework later due to illness, family situations, or other circumstances, I completely understand. I kindly request that the parent sends me a direct private message at least 2 hours before the live online class, if possible. I can still post their homework for the day(s) they miss. It's important to note that, as per Outschool's policy, there are no refunds for a student missing a live meeting. If the student doesn't join within 10 minutes of the live meeting, the meeting will be canceled for that day. Unfortunately, I don't conduct makeup sessions for missed live meetings, but I'll continue to assign homework in the Outschool classroom for them to complete by the due date. Given the nature of homeschooling, there will be a substantial amount of homework, and parents should be actively involved. ๐Ÿง‘โ€๐Ÿซ Students will receive instruction, guidance, coaching, learning, and homework assignments from me through live online sessions. I'll also post weekly guidance and homework assignments in the Outschool Classroom. Full participation in the live video meetings and the Outschool Classroom is crucial for effective learning. โฉ This is an accelerated semester class. Students will work independently from me most of the time, engaging with the textbook, crafting essays, creating videos or other projects, and completing lesson reviews for both subjects. โœจ Heavy parent involvement is absolutely necessary to help students manage their homeschool schedule for homework and to provide support to their teen. โœจ ๐ŸŽ’ Weekly Assignment Homework: Although I'm available seven days a week via private message to assist your teen with questions, provide additional guidance, coaching, and more, parent help and involvement are not just allowed but required because this is homeschooling, and most state laws hold parents legally responsible. Parents will need to assist their teen in planning their schedules to complete homework on time, help them with their assignments, and ensure all homework is completed each week. Homework includes the following: All Homework and Reviews are OPEN BOOK. 1. We cover one full chapter per week in both subjects. Each chapter contains 3 to 7 lessons, and students must complete a lesson review for every lesson. The lesson reviews include vocabulary words, skill practice, skill review, and sometimes writing practice, typically featuring 8 to 15 questions per lesson. Students can write their answers on notebook paper, in a Word document, or they can print out the lesson reviews from the PDF of the textbook that I provide. Students will read their answers during our next live meeting, and these assignments are due within one week. This applies to both subjects, and these assignments are graded. However, if there are issues with this method, some lessons can be turned into projects (see #3 below). 2. The Chapter Review at the end of each chapter must also be completed, either by writing answers on notebook paper, a Word document, or a printout of the material from the PDF textbook. Your teen will read off their answers in the next live meeting, which means this is due in one week. This is open book and graded. 3. Most weeks, but not all, your teen will be assigned a project. This might involve writing an essay, a short story, or a poem (on a Word document), creating a video slideshow (via Canva or Adobe Express), or a digital photo collage. This allows for creativity and fun. Only Canva or Adobe Express may be used for video slideshows. Both programs are free. Google Docs and Google Slides are not permitted. You can find free document programs such as Open Office, Libre, and more via an internet search. This work is graded. Please refer to the Supply List section for more information. After reviewing your teen's homework answers verbally, we will engage in in-depth discussions about the chapters studied. I'll pose questions to your teen, and they can reciprocate. This approach greatly helps in fully absorbing new knowledge, connecting it with prior knowledge, ensuring comprehension, and fostering analysis. We will then introduce the next chapter, the new homework, and, if time allows, I'll initiate the first lesson with them. One of my teaching philosophies is to teach students how to learn. In many assignments, students may be asked to answer extra questions based on their initial responses, requiring them to conduct research on the internet and share their findings. During the final week, a comprehensive semester exam will be administered for both subjects. This exam will account for 20% of your teen's final grade, but it's important to note that the exams are open book. The exam can be tailored to your teen's preferred method of learning and demonstrating their knowledge. The purpose of this exam is to gauge their ability to comprehend, analyze, infer, discuss, and make informed conclusions about the material.
4+ hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
๐Ÿ—ƒ๏ธ Your teen will have their lesson reviews, chapter reviews, slideshow projects, and writing assignments graded each week for each subject.
Grades Offered
๐Ÿ—ƒ๏ธ I send grades for this class every week through private messaging to parents, along with comments, to facilitate parental monitoring of their student's progress. I highly value and appreciate weekly feedback from parents. At the very least, parents should acknowledge the receipt of the grades I send. Parents and students can reach out to me at any time through direct messaging, and I'll respond the same day or, if not, by the next morning, seven days a week, except on holidays. ๐ŸŽ“ I award 2 full-year high school credits for Science and 2 full-year high school credits for Mathematics, as well as an overall grade for both subjects at the end of the class. Four certificates of completion will be sent to the parent via private message (2 certificates for each subject, each showing 1 credit). Depending on your homeschool laws or charter school requirements, you can use this class as 4 year-long credits, as the class is accelerated and packed with educational content. The overall grade is based on the following criteria: 1. The level of participation in discussions during weekly lesson reviews, chapter reviews, discussions of the chapters read, bonus projects, and essays in the live meetings. 2. The number of correct answers on their lesson reviews and chapter reviews while taking into account their individual learning abilities and needs. 3. The degree of participation and thoroughness in their work and research on projects and essays (if assigned). 4. A final semester exam, accounting for 20% of your teen's final grade, will be administered for both subjects during the final week. These exams are open book and can be adapted to your teen's preferred learning and demonstration method. The purpose of the exam is to assess their ability to comprehend, analyze, infer, discuss, and arrive at informed conclusions about the material. The certificate of completion will include the student's first name, "Outschool," the course name, the course end date, my full name and title as the Outschool teacher, and a final letter grade ranging from A to D-. It's important to note that I do not fail any students, as I believe that regardless of their level of involvement, they have learned something from the class. A = Excellent B = Great C = Satisfactory D = Needs Improvement ๐Ÿ“ For your homeschool portfolio teacher evaluation in your state, I highly recommend keeping PDFs of the textbooks to demonstrate all the subjects learned from each textbook and your student's graded work from me. These are crucial items to retain, including their written textbook material in Word documents, videos, projects from the Outschool classroom, and all saved assignments on your student's computer, in addition to the saved PDFs of the textbooks themselves. I strongly advise your teen to save everything to a Flash or Zip drive rather than their computer, as I won't be able to send you any of the material once the class is over.
๐Ÿซด I support unique learning needs by incorporating various teaching methods, offer flexible assignments, flexible due dates, additional resources, & fostering an inclusive environment. I also communicate regularly with students & parents.
โœ”๏ธ Students must have completed my 1st-semester class of English and Social Studies for 9th & 10th grades before enrolling in this class.
Students will need all of the following supplies before the first live meeting: 

1.) A free PDF of both ABE/GED textbooks is available for all students. It will be posted to the Outschool classroom, along with important announcements and further information, 1 day prior to the first live meeting. If you wish to search online and order a hard copy of the textbook here is the information so that you may order yours:

ABE/GED Textbook 1: "Common Core Basics Science Core Subject Module" by McGraw-Hill ISBN-13: 9780076575527

ABE/GED Textbook 2: "Common Core Basics Mathematics Core Subject Module" by McGraw-Hill ISBN 13: 9780076575190

The textbooks are a foundation of our studies, not all of the common core elements are used.

Students will need to know how to record a video of themselves in the Outschool classroom, or record a video on their own computer and post it to the Outschool classroom for projects, please.

2.) Students will need to have and know how to use a word document program. Students will sometimes be submitting short essays or answers on a document in some questions, projects, or quizzes, and attach them as a file. Documents will need to end in a .doc, .docx, or .pdf format. Parents may need to help students learn how to save a word document in these formats. Links to Google slides, docs, or any other online work document programs are not allowed. Free downloadable Word Document programs are available such as Open Office, WPS, Ultra Office, Neat Note, and more by doing a search on Google.

3.) Create free Adobe, Canva, and/or Google Slides accounts to make virtual posters (.jpg), and online slideshows (.mp4), download them to their computer and then upload them to the classroom as an attachment. Parents may need to assist their students in creating an account for Adobe Spark and/or Canva and review the different ways to create slideshows, presentations, and photo collages. This is a creative way for students to give their answers to homework and allows for their self-expression instead of just typing out answers. You can make an Adobe account very easily by using this link: https://spark.adobe.com/. Students may also use Canva too. Here is the link for a free Canva account: https://www.canva.com/. Parents may also need to assist their learners in creating their Schoology Classroom account.

It is important that the student become familiar with these materials before class begins, please.
**IMPORTANT NOTICE:** You will likely need to have a certified teacher in your state review your student's portfolio, which includes their written textbook material in Word documents, videos, projects from the Outschool classroom, and all saved assignments on your student's computer, as well as the saved PDFs of the textbooks, to ensure compliance with your state's home education laws if you are homeschooling. I HIGHLY recommend that your teen saves EVERYTHING to a Flash or Zip drive instead of their computer, as I won't be able to send you any of the material once the class is over.

Please carefully review your state's home education laws and requirements BEFORE enrolling your teen learner. I have taught these classes in this same fashion under Florida's home education laws, and all of my past students have been successful and graduated. I nor Outschool are in any way responsible for maintaining your teen's home education portfolio or grades. I nor Outschool can review transcripts and do portfolio evaluations for homeschooling. Neither I nor Outschool can guarantee this class will satisfy your state's home education laws or charter school's policies or count for high school credit. Please check your state's and/or charter school's requirements. I cannot guarantee your student passing the class. Remember that you are solely responsible for homeschooling your teen under your state's laws. I am here to help educate your teen learner. Parental involvement is absolutely necessary.

Note about the tuition:

The tuition structure for my classes may be a bit confusing. Your total weekly tuition not only covers the TWO 1-hour and 15-minute weekly live video meetings but also includes the weekly assignments, projects, and quizzes done in the classroom by your student.

Additionally, it includes my weekly lesson planning, grading of homework, research, participation in the weekly assignments, projects, and quizzes, adding feedback, content, guidance, and deeper questions for students' submitted work, responding to both student and parent private messages within 36 hours, and providing private guidance and help for your student. I am personally in the classroom working to help your student and answering private messages 7 days a week throughout the entire duration of the class.

In essence, the weekly charge of $80 per week encompasses both the live meetings and all the behind-the-scenes work that I do each week. It's important to note that Outschool also takes 30% of the total tuition for its expenses. I'm sorry, but I do not permit requests for a transfer to another date and time for this class. The only circumstance under which I could consider an exception would be if there were a tragic event affecting your learner or your family and not after the first week.

Parents may need to assist their students in creating an account for Adobe and Canva and review how to create slideshows, presentations, and photo collages with them. Adobe and Canva are user-friendly once learned. Parents may need to show their students how to save documents for various assignments or projects as .doc, .docx, or .pdf files to be attached in the classroom. Parents may also need to help their students with homework assigned by me.


We stand with learners. We are all learners. 

At Outschool, we commit to standing with all learners by fostering a diverse and multicultural community, where differences are honored, welcomed, and accepted. With education as the catalyst and technology as the tool, we are uniquely positioned to connect learners to experiences that broaden their understanding of themselves and the world around them through our collective love for learning.  

At Outschool, we strive to be OUTstanding by fostering a global online community, elevating unique voices, and transforming the way we work and learn.

At Outschool, we are all learners. We are curious and continuously interrogate the inequities created by systemic oppression on education and learning. We have the opportunity to evolve education by creating a marketplace that reflects and respects the lived experiences of historically ignored communities. 

This work is never done. To ensure equity across multiple lines of difference and experiences, we maintain a bias toward transformative action. 

Hereโ€™s what action looks like for Outschool.

We intentionally include fair representation of different social identitiesโ€“including but not limited to race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, social class, physical ability or attributes, and learning needs.

We implement processes to ensure inclusion and procedures to eliminate barriers or imbalances that keep community members from having equal opportunities.

Outschool cultivates an environment where all individuals feel welcomed, supported, and valued.

We create a sense of connection through meaningful experiences by connecting people, ideas, and resources.

While our open community is our greatest source of strength, it also brings challenges. It is important to us that Outschool is a safe space for our users. Our members should treat each other without bias or prejudice across all pillars of diversity, including, but not limited to, race, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, religion, and gender identity. Below are Outschool's Parent and Learner guidelines that we ask our members to observe. Outschool members who do not meet these guidelines will be removed from the site.


1. Learners should only attend class under their own enrollment, as themselves. It violates Outschool policy for a learner to use their siblingโ€™s or another learnerโ€™s enrollment to attend class. Learners may only join a live meeting by using the green button in their class on their Outschool Learner Account. Educators are forbidden from sending links and passwords to Zoom live meetings.

2. Ask questions of teachers to clarify any missing details about classes, important information about your learner, and fill out your learner's profile such as age, gender preference, and any notes that the educator may need to know about your learner so they may help your learner throughout the class.

3. Make sure your learner shows up for their class; many classes depend on group conversation, and the absence of a single student can have a big impact. If a learner must miss a live meeting, please have them notify their educator via a private message under the Teacher tab in their learner account as soon as possible, or you may notify the educator under the Message tab on your parent account.

4. Provide constructive feedback and reviews about your class experience, for the benefit of the teacher and other parents. The same goes for private messages.

5. Engage in civil conversation, and speak and act with respect for different opinions. Check for private messages from your learner's educators and respond promptly. All communication must take place and stay on Outschool.

6. Help keep Outschool a safe space for learners, families, and teachers from all backgrounds, beliefs, and locations. To that end, we encourage you to watch our Trust and Safety Code of Conduct video with your learner. Learners may not share personal information such as email addresses, mailing addresses, phone numbers, gamer tags, social media, etc.


1. Join the class on time and be ready to learn. Have all of the tools, textbooks, handouts, notes, or anything

 else the educator has asked of you ready to go before class starts.

2. Be kind: Help all learners feel welcome and included. Give positive feedback to your fellow classmates.

3. Be safe: Keep your personal information private and never ask other learners for theirs (e.g., email address, mailing address, phone number, gamer tags, etc.). All communication must take place and stay on Outschool.

4. Be respectful: Treat others how you want to be treated. Dress in a manner appropriate for class; please be fully clothed with both a top and bottoms on and sit upright for the class. Treat the teacher and your classmates with respect.

5. Engage & Participate: Contribute to a class environment in a way that is safe and welcoming for learners and teachers from all backgrounds, beliefs, and locations. Take responsibility for making each class a great learning experience for yourself and your classmates: participate, stay on topic, and avoid distractions. Check for private messages from your educator and respond promptly.


1. We welcome members from all backgrounds, beliefs, and locations and are committed to creating a safe space for our users across all pillars of diversity.

2. We will listen to feedback from parents, teachers, and learners and make changes accordingly. Send an email to support@outschool at any time!

3. We will create and enforce policies to create a high-quality, trusted, and safe community for learning. This may include removing content or users from the platform.

4. We will respond promptly to questions and issues that arise.


1. Offer classes only where you have the appropriate background or expertise.

2. Teach classes professionally:

3. Be prepared, begin on time, and treat all learners with respect.

4. Do not teach while impaired and do not model any behavior that a student age 18 or younger is restricted from doing.

5. Respond promptly to parent questions and requests.

6. Communicate with parents and learners in a professional manner, both in messages and in-class.

7. Keep all communications on our platform; never provide personal contact information to parents or learners for โ€œoff-platformโ€ communications or in-person meetings (prohibited unless an Outschool-sponsored event).

8. Adhere to our class content policy by only offering secular, objective, age-appropriate classes.

9. Create a safe and welcoming space for learners and families from all backgrounds, beliefs, and locations.
All sources are independently scholarly peer-reviewed, based on truth and facts, highly researched by the teacher for truthful evidence, secular, and unbiased. This especially includes the textbooks. The textbooks from McGraw-Hill are from the revamped and more challenging Adult Basic Education classes for the GED along with other sources.
